This week, we've got a sketch to get your creative juices flowing. As always the only requirements are that you use stamps that are at least a year old, you tell us how old they are and don't link up to more than ten challenges in total.
Isn't angled panel exciting?! For me, summer is becoming a memory and autumn is taking hold so this card is a last salute to the colours of summer.
Summer Silhouettes (AC 2012-13) is one of my favourite sets so I was happy to ink it up again. Papillon Potpourri (AC 2012-13) was one of the first sets I ever got - I convinced my children that it was the perfect Christmas present!
This picture shows the sponged and embossed background well. I used a technique I learned from my fellow demonstrator, Carole. I embossed a piece of greaseproof paper with the Softly Falling embossing folder. Then I ironed it the greaseproof to a piece of card. The pattern transferred and showed up when sponged. It makes such a pretty background to stamp over and is so very easy to do. Some of the centres of the Calypso Coral flowers have been highlighted with a silver gel pen.
The credit for these beautiful colours goes to the Fab Friday Challenge, so I'm going to enter this card at their challenge too.
You have until April 7 to show us your take on this lovely sketch and we'd love to see what you do with it.
